    My FIL has a coop that is about 4 feet off the ground. A small hole for the birds to get in and then they are off to bed.

    We were thinking of doing the same, so they could come and go each day. But how would we do it if we wanted no predators to get in there? Wouldn't raccons and others just climb up the sides and go through the hole?
